    The 2011 awards were presented at AWB's annual Legislative Day, which was held at the Red Lion Hotel in Olympia. Awards were presented by AWB President Don Brunell, Gov. Gregoire, and Tom Lemly of Davis Wright Tremaine. The awards are sponsored by Davis Wright Tremaine LLP.

    "Each year, we are honored to recognize companies for their efforts to make their workplaces among the very best in the state. This year's crop of winners continues that tradition," said Brunell. "The 10 businesses we celebrate today have made an ongoing commitment to providing quality products and services while also tending to the needs of their employees. We are honored to count these companies among our members and to recognize the innovative ideas they bring to the Washington state workplace."
